The City of Seattle needs to establish clear measures for outcomes in our own programs, policies and initiatives; at the same time, the City must support community-based efforts for systemic change, as well as collaborate with other governments, community organizations and the business community. To do this with accountability to the community, we must support the leadership of communities of color and open the doors for community to access government resources and decision making processes.
